Why I Cannot Vote Republican or Democrat in November

October 13, 2016

This election has been difficult for all Americans. We have been asked to choose between two candidates whose disapproval ratings are at all time highs.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, […]

“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.” (Psalm 42:1) What is worship? It is something Christians do every week, but could you explain it if you had to? What would you say to someone who does not know what worship is? God alone is deserving of worship […]

This Is My Body

January 27, 2016

While Jesus is at the table, he takes the bread, breaks it, and looks at Matthew. As far as we know, Matthew is the only one of the twelve that, when he starts following Jesus, people are pulling Jesus aside and saying things like, “Are you sure you want to be hanging around this guy? […]

Heavenly Father, This year, as every year, we commit ourselves to be people who give to missionaries at home and around the world. We continually strive to be individuals who help the poor and bring hope to people in need. We are also intent on helping our own children, families, widows and others who make […]

Text: John 13:1-15 or 1 Th 4:11-12 As I was preparing for our time around the Lord’s Table this morning I got to thinking about our hands. If you look down your row, there are different kinds of hands. Some soft. Some calloused. These hands have helped to provide food for their family. Each set […]

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will […]
